Exit the M6 at Junction 36 and continue along the A591 following signs for Windermere. On arrival at Windermere take the left turn off the main road beside the large Tourist Information Centre. Continue through the village, across a pelican crossing. Take a second left turn onto Ellerthwaite Road, continue over a crossroads onto Park Avenue. You've arrived, and you will see Beckmead - the third house on the left.
